Voting may be impacted by floods

Flooding hasn’t impacted voting yet, but may prove to be a problem.

Officials are keeping an eye on Lumby – where flooding may impact the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre polling station.

“If the big room is used as an evacuation centre then we have to look at other options,” said Janice Mori, district electoral officer.

Meanwhile, advance polls have recorded record numbers.

In the Vernon-Monashee riding, 8,485 people cast ballots during advance polls (which wrapped up Saturday). There are 47,925 registered voters in the district.

Now those who didn’t make it out previously have one more chance to make their mark – Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at their designated voting station.

Anyone unsure of where to vote can visit elections.bc.ca to find their station. Voters are reminded to bring their voting cards and ID with them.
